from unspecified tax reform and doesn't identify single loophole in there that you would close. how is this honest accounting and how does this help lend legitimacy to the budget process that many americans feel has become kind of a farce? >> there are no budget gimmicks. in fact it's not our numbers that we're using. there's an independent referee that scores everybody's budget. they score our budget, the president's budget which doesn't exist yet but when he files it they will score that. in our budget they actually score the house budget to balance in ten years. and what paul does, a budget doesn't actually implement tax reform. it calls for tax reform. it calls on the various committees of jurisdiction to do certain things. we'll be calling on our natural resources and energy and commerce committee to increase energy production for example. that doesn't say exactly how to do it. that's what those committees do. so the ways and means committee will be called upon to implement tax reform and what we mean by tax reform is to close loop holes not in the the president's example to sp
think about pat to marry -- patty mariposa proposal that includes spending cuts and tax increases. here are the numbers to call. here is the headline in the baltimore sun this morning. the budget plan -- the senate democratic plan released yesterday would raise taxes on the wealthy and some corporations -- we focused yesterday on the gop proposal and we will reflect on that a little today as we dig into one democrat tab on the table. here's the headline in the washington times. that's the direction the washington times is taking. we will look at a couple other headlines and how they are covering this story. the headline in the new york times says -- we will hear more about that this morning and that is coming into play as well. let's listen to senator patty murray, the head of the budget committee. she unveiled her 2014 budget plan yesterday afternoon. [video clip] >> are budget tackles this issue the way the american people have consistently said they want it done, with an equal mix of responsible spending cuts across the federal budget and new revenue raised by closing loopholes and c
these knuckleheads? orregard to taxing the rich cutting out loopholes, everybody in this country gets some form of entitlement in one shape or form. i don't understand why because i get a paycheck and somebody else makes their money through investments or a different way, why i am taxed more. if you earn money, you get taxed on it the same as everybody else. i do not agree with that at all. and i don't understand why we have to give tax subsidies to corporations that do not need it. why on earth does the oil company need our money? why does the agriculture business need our money? you are making enough money. cut out the tax loopholes and we can get out of this mess. host: we are covering the cpac conference and there are a number of ways you can watch and listen. depending on what the house yesterday, we will be live with the house this morning, once the house recesses, the cpac coverage can be seen on this network. you can also listen on c-span radio and wanted anytime on our website, c-span.org. also be a location to what some of the conferences that get underway this morning. some other com
to be a temporary hike of taxes on but made them perm innocent locking in place an 8.8% top rate that could have new york's most productive residents taking eyes, and it's could take a hike, but will. i was thinking of that, will burr, it's another 9% on the top rate, close to 40%, half writeoffs saying nothing of the other taxes. you're paying 50% in taxes right out the gate. what's the deal? >> well, it's disappointing in that the business community, and the temporary increase part of the overall -- neil: must have known it was not temporary. >> well, no, we believed it would be, and went along with it as part of the overall reform, and he did make some good reforms, but this one is quite different. as far as i can see, this is paired with the $350 check being dulled out to sort of upper middle class people, and then -- neil: robbing peter to pay paul. >> yeah. neil: you think you were snickered? >> a direct money transfer from people in one income bracket to people in another income bracket. neil: so here you were trying to be pragmatic of this, this guy might be a different type of democrat, unl
of bankustomers are blowing their talk, with talk of a 10% tax on deposit the money, has a lot of angry customers storming the atm machines but the government has closed banks to avid a bank run, a keeping them close until they sort this out, but the tax is till coming. for cyprus it is about the cost of staying in the euro club, never mind how average i citizes there are getting club. but this is about taxing assets there. something with which we should all be very familiar here. no uncle sam has not hacked into our bank accounts -- yet, but he made a b-line for our other assets like next time we try to sell our home, and obamacare wants 3.8% of the profit for medicare tax. juss like it is tacking medical devices for what it deems exception atrogen -- generous healthy insurance policy. so what is such a big leap going from hitting you up for dollars off fur devices, and hitting you up for dollars off your deposits. none, i tell you cyprus is not isolated. i am telling you, cyprus is a test case, it is starting, it was not only liberal the world over watching. now big brother, everywhere salivati
ones is tax policy. and if mr. ryan's budget passes as you have suggested, then the top tax rate goes from 39% to 25%. which means that those who already have a lot will get a whole lot more. . i'm reminded of a quote by president roosevelt, and he id, it's -- this is to paraphrase. he said we're not measured by how much those who have get what we do who have little. this is where the great buying power of america should be in the bottom 99%, really the bottom 50% or 60%. i thank you for raising the tax policy in the ryan budget. the rest, because of the elimination of the debt actions, are going to see a stalling of their income. ms. norton: he does get balance within 10 years and look how he gets it. you still do not have like anything like a contribution, a real contribution, from those who have benefited the most from the tax cuts built on that chart. you are talking about it continues to come from the lowest part of the income stream -- income groups in the united states. i don't know when people will -- let the congress know they aren't going to take it anymore. the time has com
a bank at tax plan. now the risks of bank runs and bank collapses mount in this tiny country. we are about to bring you live report from cyprus. but cyprus may have an ace in the hole. it's called russia. the parliament is going hat in hand to russia to save its financial system in return for ownership of its natural gas resources. so do i have this right? the russian money-laundering thugs can save cyprus and maybe europe and maybe the global financial markets as well? it's a very scary thought. however, here at home, american business leaders speaking in one voice in a new campaign to push pro growth corporate tax reform. i like it. the polls show it. there's too much talk about root canal, dent and budge cutting. we need growth, we need optimism. we need "the kudlow report." it begins right now. >>> first up this evening, let's go live to cnbc chief international correspondent, michelle caruso cabrera who joins us from cyprus with the details. good evening, michelle. >> reporter: good evening, larry. it's been a day of high drama here in cyprus. just a few hours ago, the parli

the budget. that would eliminate the deficit. on the senate side, we have accommodation of raising taxes by getting rid of unspecified tax loopholes and also cutting spending in areas like on subsidies and making changes to programs like medicare and medicaid. the democrats are pushing forward their plan. but right now there is no bipartisan plan to merge. in this slow and thoughtful thing, we will have to wait and see. >> i know you don't like the editorials from the publication "the wall street journal." this title is a key to the senate democrats play a role in the budget negotiations. beginning with these words, ring the church bells and set up the white smoke. senate democrats have released their first budget in four years. give patty murray credit for finally proposing something in public view. but after reading the document, we can say we can see why the democrats were so reluctant for so long. then the editorial spells out some specifics. >> they did not put forward a budget for warriors. we went through a crazy for years with the economy. we went to the financial crisis and the
of dollars of emergency crash and creditors impose onetime tax of 3% on all bank deposits under $130,000. >> going deep here. >> the tax could be closer to 10% on people who have over $640,000 in the bank. that's according to the "the wall street journal" this morning. people stood in long lines over the weekend to withdraw money before the policy went into effect and now russian president vladimir putin is calling the move, quote, unfair, unprofessional and dangerous. russian citizens make up the majority of billions of euros held in cypress bank. this is important. >> cypress. >> who cares about cyprus? >> come on, cyprus. are you telling me if somebody sneezes in cyprus we get a cold than on the nasdaq? >> tell us why. >> we have a cold on the nasdaq. the nasdaq is going down today. not too many people care about cyprus but a way the europeans have screwed up the bailout by getting the people to pay a part of the cost. you could have a run on the bank and europeans say why do i have my money in this bank? might be a tax on me next. it shows that europe is still a mess, that they h
on spending and taxes. so far, the game is not going very well. >> is the grand bargain dead? >> i don't know whether we can come to a big agreement. the president believes that we have to have more taxes from the american people. we're not going to get very far. >> the president has sounded equally pessimistic about bridging the divide. >> it may be that the differences are just too wide. if their position is we can't do any revenue, or we can only do revenue if we gut medicare or gut social security or gut medicaid, if that's the position, then we're probably not going to be able to get a deal. >> while there's not much agreement there are plenty of ideas. washington is awash in budgets. no less than six plans are currently circulating on the hill. there is the plan from senate democrats, or the murray plan. it includes a one-to-one ratio of spending cuts and tax increaseses, as well as short-term stimulus. then there's the house democrats' budget, which pushes for $200 billion more in revenue than the plan proposed by their party members in the upper chamber and there is a congressional pr
with all this speculation, you know, that this is a tax haven and that this is money that people have questions about, that the way europe is approaching sigh pruls is not the way you'd awe approach these other countries and if you approach the other countries this way you create a real problem and they know that. >> that brings what happens to the parliament and what impact does that have. >> the cyprian parliament decide the to vote down the bill to confiscate the money from depositors. we don't have a bill or any certainty what's going to happen. most likely recommit to the cyprian parliament and then see what's going to happen to the banks. remember the banks have been closed until thursday morning. today walt the governor of the central bank of cyprus presumely he will know saying it could be a run of ten percent of deposits on the cyprian banks. and that's cause for concern. i think the banks in cyprus make two fundamental mistakes. banking 101 is supposed to boil out. don't lose money you don't have and they did and don't ever mess with deposits because that really does effect

cut the deficit $1.8 trillion half through spending cuts and half through tax hikes. senator corker, let me start with you will senate republicans accept a tax increase if you get serious entitlement reform and cuts? >> i think senate republicans and all republicans want to see a 75 year solution to entitlements and i think republicans are joined in wanting to see tax reform so to the extent that generates revenues and how that is scored obviously that will be debated as we move ahead but i think all of us understand the real issues driving the deficit is in our o country are the entitlements. we want to see these available for generations to come. >> chris: but real quickly you you understand the price for entitlement reform in any deal would be a tax increase. would you buy that and what do you think are the prospects there willle be a deal sometime before this summer? >> well, again, i think there by the way is a chance on a deal. i know the president is saying the right things and we have an opportunity over the next four to five months i think that we will know when the preside
.85 trillion, half through spending cuts and half through tax hikes. the republican plan, paul ryan plan, would cut the deficit $4.6 trillion in ten years and includes repealing obamacare. the hope going through the legislative process they might be able to find compromise to strike some sort of deal. >> we need to put americans back to work. that's our first priority. deficit reduction i would put as the second priority and one that is coupled with economic growth the so i think we can do both. make sure we have deficit reduction but don't cut too much too fast. >> reporter: bottom line, bill, american people are seeing this over and over again. republicans and democrats fighting on both sides of the aisle and perhaps, they can come together for a grand bargain but just doesn't appear to be the case right now. as they grapple with the budget, keep in mind that two weeks away they have to come up with a continuing resolution by march 27. bill: as ryan says, at least there is baseline for comparison between the two sides. we'll get into that in just a moment here. thank you, kelly wright on the
and it was a tricky moment for him in the press conference. he included some of the tax increases that have gone into effect in recent years and explain how he was also kind of get rid and explain how he would also kind of get rid of the president's format. this is something that democrats are saying, well, week of been through the supreme court challenge, you voted on it, something like 30 times. why are we continuing to battle over something that we have no intention of fulfilling. >> the president scheduled to do his budget the week of april 8. the senate going to meet with house republicans today. give us the nature of these meetings and what will happen. >> today is the second of four trips up to capitol hill for president obama. it's part of this consensus where he's trying to win over congressional support for a grand budget bargain. this has been an effort that was kind of served by failing to avert the squeft a couple of weeks ago. he's got almost the opposite challenge of what he did yesterday when he met with senate democrats, when he was meeting with senate democrats yesterday they w
, workers who don't earn enough to pay taxes even. and so there was a lot of anger that got generated. and i think it also generated a lot of motivation. i know that our people got more mobilized as a result of that video. and i'm sure that others did. and i think that what scott did, and i think his strategy was flawless. i think what he did with no prompting by anybody but him thinking it through, he wanted those that couldn't afford the $50,000 dinner to be able to see the real mitt romney. and the others that got scott upset is that mitt romney was talking about himself being a job creator and then he saw what mitt romney was doing in china buying these factories at bain capital. and he saw that as a complete sort of contradiction of what mitt romney was trying to portray. i think in the sense that mitt romney helped the obama machinery show what romney really was about, i think it was if not a game changer darn near a game changer and i think america owes scott a big debt of thanks. >> well, he is a hero in my opinion and a lot of americans on social media are saying the same thing. it
medicaid turns medicare into a voucher program. it gives the wealthiest of americans yet another tax break and it repeals obamacare. it will get passed by the house. it will go nowhere in the senate. it is dead on arrival. but the republicans keep putting this out there. we will tell you about that and, of course, take your calls and get you a chance to get involved in the conversation. give us a call on our toll-free line at 866-557-7377. did we tell you? it looks like there was life on mars. whoa! coming up on current tv.

this week showing a wide gap, indeed, remains over spending and taxes. plans on the table both sides are taking to the airwaves to try to make their cases. peter doocy is live in washington. peter, does it look like either side is ready to give any ground? >> reporter: it depends on which interview you with a watched this morning, john boehner told abc news president obama already got the new taxes he wanted back in january so more taxes shouldn't even be on the table this time around, but another remember can bob corker indicated on fox that new taxes could be part of the discussion if democrats agree to serious entitlement reform. >> think republicans, if they true entitlement reform, would be glad to look at tax reform that generates additional revenues. that doesn't mean increasing rates. it means closing loop homes and arranging our tax system so we have economic growth. i think we've been saying that from day one. >> reporter: the house budget committee chairman paul ryan says he thinks president's trip to capitol hill to meet with republicans is a good start but he thinks the
, again, if the president wants to let our unwillingness to raise taxes get in the way, then we're not going to be able to set differences aside and focus on what we agree on. and my take away was that. >> frank and candid are always interesting diplomatic code words when year overseas. thiser boehner in today's "the washington post." for all of washington's focus on the president's outreach to republicans, it's his engagement with members of his own party n that will determine whether we succeed dealing with the challenges facing our economy. the fact is there are folks on both side of the aisle that talk a good game on the idea of reforming medicare or doing something about social security, nobody wants to own the plan. they want to agree to it reluctantly to a plan brought up by the other side because here's another fact. medicare and social security are universally popular and even in a republican primary getting caught messing around with social security without a reason is bad politics. so any time you hear this from either side, the other side needs to lead, translation
, in the ryan budget takes the taxes and repealing obamacare. what is happening is the complete integrity of our financial system is being called into question. we have the fed printing day and night to provide the monetary support for these fiscal policies, and to hear republicans say, the speaker of the house say, this is not an immediate debt crisis. what the hell does one look like? >> neil: makes you examine, were they trying to say -- calm people down into thinking we're not going to followed like this hour or this day. but by saying not immediate, and agreeing with the president, they give him a negotiating edge. the president says this isn't really like a right-now threat. up to now they've been saying this is a right-now threat. >> i don't think boehner believes it is. i think he has been around a long time. the think he has participated in this for a long time. i don't think he would use this as a crisis, and it is a crisis. paul ryan was on my program over a year ago, and he said we have two years. well, that's over a year ago, so i guess we have about ten months, and i'm surprised at
with your tax dollars. now more than 300,000 federal contractors are dodging paying their taxes if you can believe this story. a democratic lawmaker is going after those workers and she will join us next. bill: also this picture became a symbol of washington waste after taxpayers paid for a lavish las vegas conference. government workers attending there including this guy in the hot tub. wait until you hear what this federal agency is doing now. this is $100,000. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally. >> announcer: meet mary. she loves tohop online with her debit ca and so does bill, an identity thf who stole mary's identity, took over her bank accountand stole her hard-earned money. unfortunately, millions of ericans just like you learn misplaced information to wreak havoc on your life. this is identity theft and no one helps stop it better than
, it results in unfair tax hikes on middle class americans and results in undue burden on middle class americans through the cuts envisioned. >> this republican budget once again makes an ideological, uncompromising approach to addressing that budget challenge. >> perhaps the best thing i can tell you about the republican budget is that here we go again. >> yesterday americans got their first look at this year's ryan republican budget. turns out it it looks like last year's ryan republican budget and it wasn't the only one. i wasn't the only one that said, gee-whiz, not again. >> sean: their fearless lead her -- their fearless leader demagogued so he they demagogued. why are you laughing? >> i'm laughing because these are what i'll call the jim jones democrats. these people are unbelievable with what they're talking about. let me throw a few facts on the table. the government accountability office that works for harry reid and obama, they say 125 billion dollars in estimated improper payments in the federal government? i've got another one of their reports, 510 billion dollars of dupli
: tax time. hate to remind you about that, but millions of americans are preparing to pay uncle sam. they're looking for a tax break as well, like the government tax credit. as much as $7500 for environmentally friendly electric cars. while ads say these cars produce zero emissions, our next guest says that may not actually be the case. in fact he says green cars have a dirty little secret and tax breaks for them may not be in the best interests for taxpayers. he is the author of, cool it, skeptical environmentalist. he wrote an article in the "wall street journal" just the other day, the dirty secrets about electric car. what is a dirty little secret about what is supposed to be a clean car? >> they don't emit co2 when driving on the road but they take up a lot of co2, fossil fuels when they're being produced. they take up as much as it would take to drive 80,000 miles when it gets produced because battery are incredibly energy costly to produce. then at the same time, of course you actually recharge them with electricity. that is also mostly produced with fossil fuels. jenna: so i
't love racing taxes just for the sake of raising taxes. we do so in the service of creating a fairer tax code, funding investments for the future and in the service of a balanced approach to deficit reduction. if you take out the deficit reduction concerns and lord knows that any sort of inve investment spending right now is not going to pass muster with the house republicans, you're left with the fairness motive. a more just system would certainly be nice, does it offset the injustice of cutting benefits to folks who rely on social security? to scuttle a brand bargain deal, though, democrats need some sort of political cover. hmm. if only some republican would put out a really toxic, extreme, ideological plan that democrats could point to as continuing republican intransigence, they could walk away with not political consequence. you know, i think i know just the guy. all right. that does it for us here at "the cycle." martin bashir, all yours. >>> good afternoon, it's thursday march the 14th. who needs compromise on capitol hill when cpac is just a few miles up the road? >> was there a
the budget over the next ten years. >> but no tax increases. >> no tax increases. the president already got $650 billion worth of tax increases january 1st. he got a trillion dollars worth of tax increases in obama care. this year the federal government will bring in more revenue than any year in our history and yet we're still going to have a trillion dollars budget deficit. spending is the problem. >> the white house says in response, yes, it's true. taxes went up more than $600 billion over ten years at the end of the year but it is also true the white house put $1.5 trillion worth of spending cuts in their budget. the truth is you're both right. i mean, they have offered spending cuts. the taxes did go up. it still hasn't made enough of a dent. you still have to sit down and do something. >> right. i think we're doing our budget this year. actually we're doing it this week here in the house. our budget will balance in ten years. we're going to pass our budget. hopefully the senate will pass their budget. except their budget never comes to balance. the president's budget never comes to b
to the economic policies of the last administration. this is the path to more tax cuts for the rich but less opportunity for the middle class to get ahead. it is a path not to prosperity, which can only truly be built from the middle out, but to the deterioration of our national infrastructure and the decline of our schools and the dismantling of the medicare promise we've made to our seniors. this approach in fact was on the ballot last november. voters around the country rejected it. instead, they want an approach that puts the middle class first, that returns our nation to the fiscal and economic policies that have worked for this country before by focusing on jobs and the economy, cutting spending responsibly, and calling on the wealthiest americans to pay their fair share. the senate budget, mr. president, which we put out today, reflects the progrowth, promiddle-class agenda that the american people went to the polls and supported in november. our budget is really built on three principles. number one -- we need to protect our fragile economic recovery. create jobs and invest in long-t
down to the bottom line, the president believes that we have to have more taxes from the american people. we're not going to get very far. if the president doesn't believe that the goal ought to be to balance the budget, i'm not sure we're going to get very far. this is the whole issue, we have a spending problem here in washington. >> where is your trust level with the president? i mean, you're talking about these meetings as if they really didn't mean much. >> no, the president and i have a very good relationship. we're open with each other. we're honest with each other. but we're trying to bridge some big differences. >> so, do you trust president obama? >> absolutely. >> absolutely? >> absolutely. there's no issue there. >> listen to what president obama told george stephanopoulos about the debt this week. >> we have already cut $2.5 trillion, $2.7 trillion out of the deficit. if the sequester stays in, you got over $3.5 trillion in deficit reduction already. so, we don't have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. in fact, for the nen ten years, it's going to be in a sustainab
for virginia, which required them to raise taxes i think on the gas tax or somehow to pay for these highway improvements and god knows northern virginia particularly needs them. no, because he did that and made a deal with the federal government, the department of transportation, he was not invited to cpac. but all of the rest of the crazies were. and it turned out, there was a big split yesterday in the message. -- the messages given to cpac. first of all rand paul scale in hot off of his drone filibuster and said the party needs a shakes-up and a new cleansing. >> the got of old has grown stale and moss-covered. i don't think we need to name any names. do we? >> you know who he is referring to. >> our party is inc. covered by an incounsistent approach to freedom. the new g.o.p. will need to embrace liberty in the comic and the personal sphere. >> which is sort of saying all much those emphasis on the social issues? right? liberty on the personal spear means get the government out of my bedroom. this is the libertarian speaking. when he says, i don't need
taxes, do they believe that the democrats will just cave with no compromise? >> alex, you may know i was one of the few republicans who was saying that we a bit more revenue, but also through tax reform. i made that case all the way up to the fall. and when begot up to the fiscal cliff, i was hoping that the agreement would incorporate spending reductions as well. it was $73 billion of increased taxes. so i voted no for it. i'm really asking me democratic colleagues to help us address spending, our budget goes up by about 3.45%. both of them go up, it's just that the democrats are going up really far higher. >> but representative ridgeal, are there others who are like minded like you in the party? how many? >> but there are some, but i do want to make the point who are that it truly is spending that's driving this train and i was very disappointed in our president when after the election, he put it this way, he said we need to begin to take a look at how we reform titlements. this was after he had been in the office for four years and i had an opportunity to speak with the president
